Oh, Her Hair!

     Meg Ryan is one of my favorite romantic actresses.  Further, Sleepless in Seattle is one of the best romantic movies of all time.  Last night, Jim and I rummaged up our VHS copy and snuggled on the couch (if he's embarrassed that I indulged this information, he shouldn't be... it's things like that that make him my prince).  
     Meg Ryan is known for her beautiful, perky hairstyles but I think her hair is the most gorgeous in Sleepless in Seattle.  It's that haphazard/classic/graceful look that my hair never does.  
     The subtitle of my blog ("I got my hair layered today") reminds me how long it's been since I've had a haircut.  I'm usually the no-nonsense-cheap-Great-Clips-haircut kind of girl, but I've had it with my stupid hair.  My last "layered" haircut was awful and now it won't lay right or do anything I want it to and so I end up pulling it up in a ponytail which furthers it's damage and breakage.  I need to just break down and spend the money for a worth while haircut.  Any recommendations for a good stylist??

If you lived in St. Louis, I would recommend a great place, but I haven't lived in Greenville in 5 years so I'm no help to you.

I know you don't know me but I know your husband - went to high school with him. Anyway, I just thought I'd let you know about a place because I made the same decision to stop going to Great Clips and getting once a year haircuts too. :) Northgate Beauty Salon is where I went but ONLY let Noel Masters cut your hair - she's one of the only two young girls there. It's VERY reasonably priced. She's a great stylist but stays at this place because she has some family ties I believe. She just had a baby several weeks ago so it might be a couple of months before she's back at work but she's awesome!

Have you heard of Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor who wrote the current bestseller "My Stroke of Insight"? Taylor was a Harvard trained brain scientist who suffered a massive stroke. I don't think we'll ever hear a story like this - Taylor understands how the brain functions and she was able to observe her mind deteriorating. She writes about the euphoric nirvana and a sense of complete peace and well-being she discovered in her stroke and she talks about this in her incredible (don't miss it) talk on TED.com. In the book, Taylor explains how to 'step to the right of their left brain' to uncover a deep internal peace. Meg Ryan was in the audience when Dr. Taylor gave her speech at TED... hey, maybe she'll do the movie and we'll all be able to "have what she's having" to reprise that line from When Harry Met Sally : ) Sign me up!
